Established in 2019, EMBRACE YOUR PACE® is a company that inspires people to reach their full potential by recognizing the power that comes from following their own path. We often get wrapped up in what other people are doing and where we feel we should be at this point in our lives. Social media is making it even harder not to play the comparison game.
EMBRACE YOUR PACE® is about reminding people not to let the success of others make us feel “less than” or unworthy of success. We all have different paths and different timing. Be present at each step of your journey. Take full advantage of each moment, as this will prepare you for the future you want.
We are husband and wife and co-owners of Embrace Your Pace®. Who knew that a single swipe to the right on a dating app would turn into a lifelong partnership not only as a married couple but also as business owners. It was our love of sports that originally connected us but it was our passion to help others in a meaningful way that ultimately sealed the deal!
A few years ago, I came-up with the phrase “Embrace Your Pace” after listening to “Perfect Timing” by Nipsey Hussle. As a former athlete trying to find my way in the professional world, I noticed that I was spending too much time comparing myself to others. What started off as a reminder to myself to embrace my journey, quickly became a message that I wanted to share with others. In 2019, I founded Embrace Your Pace ® and started making apparel.
Five months ahead of the Tokyo Olympics, Karelle made the difficult decision to stop training in order to prioritize her mental health. This was a true testament of what “embracing your pace” is all about. It was at that time that Karelle decided to join the community and started Embrace Your Pace Performance™.
Our goal is to empower people to reach their full potential, no matter their field of endeavor, by embracing their unique journey.
